Ibrahim Idris.

In continuation of the current efforts of the Inspector-General
of Police to flush out unethical officers giving the Nigeria
Police Force a bad image, approval has been given for the
dismissal of three policemen attached to Area ‘N’ Command
Ijede-Ikorodu under the Lagos State Command. They are (i)
AP.No 136005 Inspr. Okelue Nkemeonye, (ii) F/No. 355897
Sgt. Braimoh Sunday and (iii) F/No. 359928 Sgt. Yusuf
Olukoga. Their dismissal followed an Orderly Room trial at the
Zone Two Command Headquarters, Onikan-Yaba, Lagos in
which the men were found guilty by the Adjudicating officer on
two charges of offence against discipline as provided for in
paragraphs C (ii) Corrupt Practices and E (iii) Discreditable
Conduct of the First Schedule of Police Act and Regulations
Cap. P19. Law of the Federation of Nigeria 2004.
THE CASE AGAINST THE DISMISSED POLICEMEN
On the 21st June, 2017 the Public Complaint Rapid Response
Unit (PCRRU) received a complaint via WhatsApp number 0805
700 0003 which states thus:
“My name is (withheld), I went to the bank this morning to
deposit money to a Company’s account (name withheld) but
there was no network so i deposited the money into my
personal account to do the transfer to the account later. When
I came out of the bank, a car packed full of some SARS
policemen wearing black cloth with anti-robbery squad written
at the back. I was told to enter the vehicle with a gun pointed
at me.
They collected my mobile phone and asked me what I
do for a living I told them that I had just finish my youth
service and I am leaving with my brother and I pointed my
brother shop for them to stop by and see him because he was
the one that sent me to the bank, they refused to wait and
they did not allow me to pick my calls and call out.
 I received
an alert on my phone with the money I went to deposit they
search my phone on seeing the alert they started roping that
am a yahoo boy telling me that I would pay them 1Million, one
of them slapped me, they drove us around places in Ikorodu,
ijede, gberigbe, ibeshe, igbe, ikpakodo, itaelewa, agric and first
gate harassing people, moving them in the car and collecting
huge amount from them. They collected N50, 000.00 from me
but I notice that each junctions that we reached people were
hailing there leader by his nickname (OJ. Ojewunmi). And one
by name Austin slapped me. They picked me up around 9am
and dropped me 6pm in the evening after collecting money
from me. They even use my account to collect money from
the guys that I met in the car and used my ATM to withdraw
from them”
Upon the receipt of the complaint, a case with Tracking
Number # PCRRU637624 was registered and acknowledgment
of complaint sent to the complainant. PCRRU Investigation
team was dispatched to Ikorodu where all the three dismissed
policemen including AP No. 98199 ASP Bayo Obadia who led
the team were apprehended. PCRRU preliminary investigation
reveals that all the allegations contained in the WhatsApp
message actually happened. Also the four police officers who
were armed on the day of the incident falsely paraded
themselves as operatives of Special Anti-Robbery Squad
(SARS) despite not being posted to SARS by police authorities.

Investigation also shows that the officers extorted a total sum
of N200,000 from the young men who they tagged “Yahoo
Yahoo Boys”, the money was force from them via N90,000
ATM withdrawal and N110,000 mobile bank money transfer to
a third party account provided by the policemen.
 All the
extorted N200,000 was recovered by the PCRRU Investigators.

All the arrested officers, witnesses and recovered exhibits
including the N200,000 cash and printed bank statement of
account were handed over to the Assistant Inspector-General
of Police, Zone 2 Lagos for further detailed investigation and
necessary disciplinary measures. The approval of the
punishment of dismissal from service as recommended by the
Adjudicating officer is part of the outcome of the disciplinary
measures. In the case of ASP Bayo Obadiah who led the team
of the infamous men on this unacceptable conduct, an Official
Query was issued to him by the AIG Zone 2 Lagos, both his
reply and Query has been forwarded to the office of the Force
Secretary, Force Headquarters, Abuja from where it would be
proceeded to the Police Service Commission as required by
Police Regulations.

The Inspector General of Police, IGP Ibrahim K. Idris NPM,
mni has commended the complainant for coming forward to
report the incident to PCRRU, the IGP has also said that all
allegations of professional misconduct reported against any
police officer would be treated in line with relevant laws and in
keeping to the “Change Begins With Me" campaign of the
Federal Government.

Members of the public are encouraged to report cases of
police misconduct to the PCRRU for resolution as IGP Ibrahim
K. Idris led administration is bent on ensuring a more public
friendly and corrupt free police force in Nigeria.
